Wine Blessing in the Covenant Ceremony 1

Nir Harburger

2004

We will bless the wine during this covenant

We will sweeten the covenant of Abraham

And conduct the covenant between people

To bless the life of the newborn with human qualities

The one and only, loved and belonging

We will renew covenants that have been made

We will light a light of grace and truth

Justice and peace

For each and every generation

In the congregation of Israel and the entire world

Blessed are you Lord of the Universe

The creator of the vine
